Liverpool 800th Birthday Logo As we’ve already mentioned, Old Hall Street and the surrounding area in the heart of Liverpool’s business district will be hosting a street party on 28 August to celebrate the city’s 800th birthday.

We’ve now got a few more details of what you can get up to:

  • Old Hall Street will be closed outside the Post & Echo building, 11.30am – 3.30pm but visitors can get round – there will be a traffic management company and stewards to re-direct traffic to car parks etc.
  • Geraud markets will be selling fine foods at six stalls, plus CAMRA real ale tasting. Seven companies (including Liverpool Chamber) will be taking part in school games
  • An Echo chip van will be selling chips wrapped in special commemorative Echo
  • Cake making competition – a cook-off contest between chefs.
  • Local pubs will be taking part – Exchange, Cross Keys, Lion are all in the real beer festival starting on the birthday, plus fine foods will be available. Cross Keys – history of stadium/boxing display – former boxers visiting.
  • Exchange Flags will be decked up with a Medieval theme – including falconry (to keep the local pigeons on their, er, toes), archery, jousting and the like – 11.30 – 15.00.
